Dear future generations,

We are all sorry for all the mistakes we have made. We made mistakes like sea levels rising because of the heat from all our carbon emissions which stopped you seeing beautiful creatures like polar bears and arctic foxes. Sea creatures are dying from plastic and so are land animals like wild rabbits and hedgehogs. We also apologise for the small number of trees we left as well because of us wanting palm oil.

From now on I will try and get a scooter or bike so I can ride from place to place and I will use a lot more public transport like buses and trains. Lights and electric items will be turned off in my house from now. I hope we make a change for you and later generations.

Dear Peyton and Lucas,

I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!

 

To My Dear Grandchildren,

Be assured that in the upcoming election, I will cast my vote for your future – for elected officials that recognize climate risks and are willing to promote and vote for legislation that will stop environmental damage and begin to heal our planet.

 

Dear Future,

I asked you, the future , to help us as well, to preserve our only planet that can give us life, that can let us watch anime, go to the beach, smell flowers, run through the meadow, listen to our songs, be in a concert, and let us live.

 

Dear future 82-year old me,

29 years later, I wish I still can ride bike and go some lovely places in nature. Sky is blue and air is fresh, I will be shining under the sun.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.

 

Dear People Of The Future,

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.

 

Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.
